To investigate the influence of different bending and shear reinforcement configurations of 1.50 x 1.50 x 0.20 m³ reinforced concrete (RC) plates under impact loading, five experiments were carried out at the drop tower facility of the Otto Mohr Laboratory of the Technische Universität Dresden, using the accelerated mode. Therefore, three different arrangements of the flexural reinforcement and two specimens with various stirrup configurations were investigated by using an equal impact velocity. Finally, the relation between global behaviour and local damage of the RC specimens was analysed. It also became clear that the perforation behaviour as well as the fracture body shape at the inside of the tested specimen were influenced by changing the rebar spacing and adding additional stirrups.
